During the AEW All Out media scrum, Bryan Danielson explained why he left WWE.

Danielson said that he loves Vince McMahon and he liked working in WWE. When he was asked when he first started thinking about AEW, he said that, just like CM Punk, he saw how AEW handled Brodie Lee's situation and he loved that because Brodie meant so much to him.

Danielson was asked about his wife Brie Bella joining AEW. He said that she is happy in WWE and she has many business connections through WWE so he doesn't see her leaving there.
